GREEN BAY, Wis. — A ten year veteran of the force — “Skateboard Cop” — is happy to be out of the patrol car.

“I think I’m the only one in the world who actually patrols with a skateboard,” Officer Joel Zwicky said. “Wanted to break that down and show people that skateboarders aren’t just punk kids causing trouble, they are all kinds of people in the community, and they’re even your police force.”

But the board also serves an official purpose. Officer Zwicky has used it to make a traffic stop.
